Employee Pension – 7%

Company Pension – 11%

### Sample Calculation

If the salary of an employee is 2,000 Birr.

By referring to the above table, we can see that 2,000 birr falls in the No. 4 row. So, Tax Rate = 15% and deduction = 142.50

Income Tax = (2,000 Birr x 15%) – 142.50 Birr

Income Tax = 300 Birr – 142.50 = 157.50 Birr

Employee Pension = 2,000 Birr x 7% = 140 Birr

Employee Net Income = 2,000 Birr – 157.50 – 140 = 1702.50 Birr

Net Income = 1,702.50 Birr
